Salubris

falling
like lead dropped from a skyscraper
i never knew i could feel this way

flipping
head over heels, sailing through the air,
defying nature’s strongest force

sprinting
emotions running wild
like stallions on the prairie

doubting
what i once was so sure of
can this be real?

breaking
heart emulsified
as a city wrecked by a tornado

fibrillating
barely alive,
but still hanging on

shocking
pain as i awaken
from the blackest slumber of heartache

blinding
light pierces my pupils
as i begin to see clearly for the first time

frightening
the prospect of trusting
what if i get hurt?

comtemplating
a new life, another chance awaits
what will i decide?

choosing
a different path this time
no turning back

learning
from my mistakes,
to love again

following
my heart
forevermore

surrendering
completely
to the greatest force ever known

embracing
the future
my destiny awaits

falling
again, because
i choose to
